This is the second book in Monica McCarty's first trilogy which tells the story of the McLeod siblings, this second book is about Alex, the younger brother of Rory (the hero in Monica McCarty's first novel: Highlander Untamed).
I have to confess this second book is my least favourite in the trilogy, but still it is remarkably good (I just personally prefer the 1st and 3rd novels). McCarty's writing is again stellar, her prose is flowing and her characters are again more than mere 2D characters, they come off the page and live and breathe. Here is a heroine who is not that beautiful, at least her beauty is not striking at first sight, but has sucha kind and warm heart you'll instantly like her.
This novel is pulsing with passion (most of the time with repressed attraction and desire) and thanks to McCarty's brilliant writing you cannot remain unaffected.
If you like quality historical romance, reading about larger than life heros, or if you simply liked Monica McCarty's first novel, I'm sure you won't be disappointed by Highlander Unmasked. It is fast-paced, sensual, exciting and wonderfully written. (And if you do like it, don't stop there, go and read McCarty's other novels, you are in for a treat.)
